I feel powerful

Thursday, November 15, 2012

I have just had an incredible day. It was like
a Eureka moment. I have been on Spark for
almost 5 years and have made some amazing
friends. I feel I have not been true to myself
as I never really realized that I had all the tools
to lose weight right here.

I have only recently started tracking my exercise
minutes. I am now trying to get my head around
tracking my food. I do it mentally but I KNOW I
have to write it all down. I'll get there, I know I
am almost there. Why is this? Taking so long to act.

Anyway, I have finally let go of the depression,
weaned myself off the anti-depressants and have
finally started to stop being a potato couch and
doing something about it. Already by losing just a
few kilos, I find I no longer have GORD nor the need
to take Nexium for it. I am watching my food in-
take and being mindful. I feel as though I have the
power to take control and it really feels great.

This morning, I went to my circuit class from 7 - 8am,
came home and got ready for work at 9.15. I walk
to the exercise place and walk to work as well.
Instead of spending all my time in front of the TV,
I started to clean up and declutter. In other words, I
kept MOVING. At 6pm, I went to an Hour of Pilates.

I feel more flexible and in 5 weeks have lost 3 centi-
metres off my waist. Slow but sure. I am not even going
to stress about the scales. The 8 week Heartmoves
program has my starting weight and I will wait till then
before weighing in. emoticon

I really feel as though I am less stressed, more confident
and can now take control. If I can do it at 66, so can any
one. AGE IS NO BARRIER. THANK YOU SPARK. emoticon
